Understanding Reliability of Low Temperatures Solders and New Developments in Low Temperature Solder Materials
Speaker: Kim Flanagan, Indium Corporation 

From wearable electronics to rework processes, the use of low-temperature solder is expanding in the PCBA industry. Low-temperature solders are being used to minimize the heat input to a PCBA, thereby reducing high energy costs and the risk for board and component warpage. Furthermore, low-temperature solders can be advantageous for applications where thermally sensitive components are present as well as step soldering applications. Up until recently, eutectic Bi-Sn and Bi-Sn-Ag alloys have been the primary low-temperature solders of choice, mostly due to their cost efficiency when compared to other low-temperature solders. However, with a renewed focus on solder joint reliability, the brittle nature of these Bi-Sn alloys has caused concern for this reliability requirement specifically for applications that will experience drop shock environments. As a result, many efforts have gone into researching and developing other low-temperature solder options to address the reliability concerns and environmental limitations of Bi-Sn alloys. These advancements include In-containing alloys and also a new, low-temperature alloy, Durafuse™ LT.

Reliability of Robotics for Electronic Manufacturing 
Speaker: Bubba Powers, Weller Professional Tools

Reliability of electrical or electronic soldering has always been paramount for the success of long-term market share and presence for electronics manufacturers. Process control is the key to ensuring manufacturers produce high quality and reliable products within their respective fields. In today’s environment of automation and high tech electronic controls, high reliability in electronics manufacturing is now more critical than ever before.Automation is one approach to achieving the pinnacle of high reliability in electronics manufacturing, as repeatability and traceability are two keys to maintaining optimum process control. However, it is the responsibility of every employee to maintain and control these processes whether they are automated or manual. In a world of trending automation and artificial intelligence in all of our surroundings, one slight miss can mean the difference in the success or failure of any electronic product. A failure in the manufacturing process could be insignificant if it is a cell phone, a play station or a television, but it can be of major consequence if it affects the electronics in the car that your family is in, the flight that your spouse is on or the technology that your military member is utilizing.Join us for an overview of the process of automation in the soldering workplace and a discussion of what factors are just as critical for high reliability electronics regardless of whether you are working with a manual or an automated manufacturing environment.

Cleaning for Reliability in Electronics
Speaker: Emily Peck, MicroCare Corporation 


Emily's presentation examines how cleaning can be an important tool for enhancing reliability in a production engineer’s toolbox. Successful critical cleaning involves first identifying the contaminant and then selecting the best combination of cleaning fluids and methods to effectively remove it. Balancing these factors properly can enhance cleaning reliability.
